This little restaurant on busy Nicklin Way is a great find. Their menu is extensive with different daily specials. (We had beautiful avocado wraps to share.) They have the usual Italian choices but there are some interesting additions to the menu. There is a takeaway pizza place attached. Their choice of pizzas & pastas come in a variety of sizes...

Food here is excellent. It's not your usual Italian restaurant fare, but rather true homestyle Italian cooking. Fresh ingredients, tasty recipes, prepared perfectly. Decor is unintentional 70s kitsch, but look past that and you'll be well rewarded. I recommend trying one of the less common menu items eg. my lamb cutlets with garlic & anchovies in a balsamic glaze were... More

Great pizza and pasta being going here for year's and is still very popular with the locals and tourist. The Bruno's special is my favourite price is about $25.00 for a family pizza which is enough for 2 adults and may have left over for the next day.

Bruno's Borgo Antico captures everything we love about dining in Italy. It offers you traditional Italian fare where everywhere else on the Sunshine Coast is serving a fusion of cuisines. A taste of the Mediterranean.

The only thing good about our evening out was the fact the wife had no pants on. Food was so so dismal,her seafood pasta should have been called burnt garlic stuff. My pizza was worse and more flavourless than a tradies boot insole. Pointed out the burnt garlic slop and got a smile. Also charged $5 for drinking my own... More

Hi Darren. Sorry you did not enjoy your dinner. Unfortunately you waited till the end of the meal to state your dissatisfaction and not taken the opportunity half way through when you were asked whether you were enjoying it. A replacement was offered but the person who ate the meal declined and stated it was fine. A closer inspection of... More

The entrees where good, and one of the mains the Shrimp dish was fantastic but lamb and more so the Pizza (Which we where really looking forward too) where no better than a frozen McCain pizza, what a let down!

This restaurant is a real Italian family restaurant. I did feel sorry for the waitress who had to tend to 40 people by herself, which made the service slow and non personal. The food was OK, mine was laden with salt but my wife said her meal was amazing. I was satisfied with the food, but would rather go back... More

Bruno did it again. Beautiful food, large portion sizes, wonderful authentic flavours, and all meals served with a smile (and a gorgeous Italian accent) by his delightful wife, Anne-Marie. We just love this place. Shame he had run out of lamb the night before (the lamb cutlets served with an cheese and anchovy sauce are just to die for, as... More

Owned and run by an Italian family, Bruno's is a hidden gem in the busier Nicklyn Way. Despite the Roman origin, they serve superb Italian food with a delicious Mediterranean accent. Definitely the best pasta in Caloundra.
